Surgical simulation is becoming an increasingly important educational tool and performance metric in the training of orthopedic surgeons. Understanding and visualising a surgical procedure before executing it in practice is crucial to surgical training success. TouchSurgery by Kinosis was one of the first surgical simulation apps available on mobile devices and we reviewed it last year — making us huge fans. Kinosis took it to a new level though with a tremendous update that was just released.

This app continues to be a leader in surgical simulation mobile apps. The content and graphics recreate the surgical operating room with incredible detail. The app design allows for step-by-step instruction and testing of common surgical procedures. The updated app is enhanced with modules from Duke University, Stanford University, and the Imperial College London. This app is an excellent resource for any surgical trainee looking to expand their surgical knowledge of common procedures.
